Gogobot's Rome City Guide offers the best personalized guide to the Eternal City. Rome, the Italian capital, holds much more in store for vacationers than just the ruins of a long forgotten empire; it is a modern, cosmopolitan city that is the center of all things Italian. Some of the remarkable attractions Rome has to offer include the Roman Colosseum, which still stands as a monument to the greatness of the ancient Roman Empire, and the Vatican, home to the Pope and the Catholic Church, as well as one of the world’s largest collections of art – capped by Michelangelo’s spectacular Sistine Chapel. No visit to Rome is complete without indulging in one of the Roman’s favorite things to do: eating a plate of prosciutto and melon from one of the many outstanding restaurants in any one of Rome’s beautiful piazzas. For dessert, sniff out some good gelato and relax on the Spanish Steps or head to the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin in for good luck. Rome’s hotel scene is a lot like other European cities with a wide variety of hotels and hostels, just be sure to book in advance because rooms tend to fill up quickly, especially in summer months. When in Rome, be sure to take a minute to do as the Romans do: relax, talk, and enjoy life.
Rome offers countless opportunities for modern-day visitors to walk back in time, or stay firmly in the present. Modern restaurants and nightlife make Rome one of the most exciting cities in Italy. Expand your horizons to the surrounding countryside of Lazio for some treasures. Hit the beaches near Rome’s coastal port city of Civitavecchia or travel to the ancient port of Ostia Antica, where recent excavations have uncovered supremely preserved ruins rivaling those of Rome’s Forum. Feel like more of an Italian village ambiance? Tivoli features winding streets, quaint restaurants, and a beautiful river gorge cutting directly through the city overlooked by Roman temple ruins.
